Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education Releases Top Ten Issues to Watch in 2017

The latest report looks at several recurring topics such as funding and early learning but introduces some new topics such as student mental health and school and district leadership.  Georgia Partnership policy and research director, Dr. Dana Rickman, and I were interviewed about the latest publication this week for the Georgia News Network's public affairs program Georgia Focus.  It will air this weekend across the state on 140+ stations.  Check here for stations and times. You can find a link to the interview on our web site.

The Top Ten is a "go-to" resource for public education across our state.  All members of the legislature receive a copy at the start of the session, many of our college and university teacher preparation programs use it in their classes, and it can be found at education-related conferences as well as in the hands of individual education stakeholders from parents to state-level advocates throughout the year. Four thousand copies are printed and distributed annually.
